User Settings

For information about inviting users to your projects or teams, check out our User Management Guide. This guide is meant to help people configure their personal preferences when they’ve already joined a project.

Overview

User accounts in Honeybadger are very similar to those in GitHub. Each user is his or her own person. While project admins can configure project-level integrations like Slack, each individual user has complete control over their personal alerts and other user settings on the User Settings page.

Here are some examples of “personal settings”

  • Localized date and time preferences
  • Connection to GitHub and other 3rd-party accounts
  • Daily and weekly digest email settings for all projects
  • Local editor selection for links displayed on backtraces

Configuring Personal Alerts

Alerts sent via email, SMS and our mobile apps are considered “personal.” You and only you control where they’re sent, whether they’re enabled, etc.

You have a separate set of alert preferences for each project you work with. One way to edit them is by going to each project’s settings page and clicking on the “Alerts” tab. There’s a section for “Personal Alerts.”

Personal alerts

Configuring Alerts across multiple projects

If you work with lots of projects, it can be a hassle to visit each settings page. That’s why we’ve added a single page UI where you can enable/disable all personal notifications in one place. This is available on the Notifications tab of the User Settings page.

GitHub Sign In

Connect GitHub

To be able to sign in with GitHub, you’ll need to connect your Honeybadger and GitHub accounts. To do this:

  1. Log in to Honeybadger
  2. Go to the User Settings page
  3. Click on “Connect your GitHub Account”
  4. Tell GitHub to allow Honeybadger to use your account for sign in

Note that this only sets up GitHub login. It doesn’t connect your projects to GitHub. You’ll have to do that in project settings.
